You may have noticed that this week my little morning posts are all related to enjoying life, so I thought I would extend this topic a little further, how many people do you know, that do not enjoy life, that their quality of enjoyment is low or of no existence, what could the reason be, there are in fact many, but there is really no reason why no one can not enjoy life……………………………I can already hear you arguing this point, but lets look at it more closely….., you have seen the meaningful quotes on someone who has no shoes and of course the more negative side to this would be, someone with no legs, and then of course the fact that we are here. You will find it is at times not a question of enjoying life for some people, it is more that they have given up on life, and this of course also means themselves……………………..
There can be many reasons for this, we could have lost our life partner and life without them seems strange, hard unbearable,we are passing through the most saddest time in our life, but that does not mean we have to give up on life, when we know deep down, that everything that happens to us or the struggle we face, it is for a reason, we don’t always see that reason, sometimes we never do, but there is a reason, and we are also told that we are never sent anything that we cannot handle…………..how many of you have personally or know someone who would argue this point until the cows come home…………..I even could myself,but I know when I stop and start to reflect I start to see the things I am doing I realise, that without X Y or Z I would never had done this or even found the strength, when we are under duress we find a magical kind of strength whether that be emotional or physical but to find this we must never give up on ourselves or on life, this is not the same as quitting, we can quit a thing, but everything around us carries on, we give up on a dream (which we should never do) as this stays with us and in a way haunts us, through life, we are left with that feeling of what ever, however, on saying that we have maybe gone on to do something else, so we have not given up on life or ourselves, just that one particular thing, so if you are giving up on life or know someone who is, it is time to have a spectacular one to one talk with yourself, do you have people who depend on you, love you, look up to you…………….I know for sure that you do not deserve this in your life and for sure your family or friends don’t either, so what are you going to do about it ? Life can be great for anyone, it does not take money to enjoy life, the sun, snow, wind rain can all be enjoyed, the beauty of the city, countryside, children playing there are so many beautiful things that you can enjoy, but the decision is yours, that choice belongs to you,so its time to make it, don’t focus on what you dont have, just on what you have, if your health is a little on the down side, just enjoy what you can do and the abilities you have now, use your memory for other circumstances, but remember the beautiful times with joy and happiness, not with sadness in your heart, join life its a great place to be !
